Nerdist Writers Panel #234: Dead Pilots Society Backdoor Pilot

Ben Blacker is joined by writer Andrew Reich (Friends) to discuss and sneak-preview Dead Pilots Society, a Writers Panel spin-off coming in 2016 in which pilots that were developed but not shot are given the table reads they deserve. Starring actors you know and love from television and film, a live audience, and a good time in which no one gets notes, no one is fired, and everyone laughs.

Dead Pilots Society is piloted here with a script Andrew wrote with his then-writing-partner, Ted Cohen, called Laurel and Holly. It stars Molly Shannon (Saturday Night Live), Sarah Chalke (Scrubs), Anna Camp (Pitch Perfect), Kyle Bornheimer (Agent Carter), Jamie Denbo (Ronna and Beverly), Hayes MacArthur (Angie Tribeca), Tony Cavalero (School of Rock), and Valerie Azlynn (Sullivan and Son).
